Reviewed by Roy T. James for Readers' Favorite

Random Thoughts by Jennifer Johnson is made up of random thoughts, poetry, and inspirational quotes. The random thoughts of the author grace such varied subjects as ‘What could be keeping my dog’s mind busy’ or ‘What writing really means to me.’ Then come poetic thoughts of a similar vein, ‘Where there is death, there is also life…,’ ‘Walls of stone with history within’ becoming a castle, or ‘Soul selects her own society.’ The inspirational quotes also cover a lot of topics, from the mundane to the sublime, for example: “A lie is a lie even if everyone believes it. The truth is the truth even if no one believes it.”

Random Thoughts by Jennifer Johnson contains thoughts from the ever racing mind of an author. Truly random and therefore truly interesting, almost all the topics covered offer something new to ponder. The author's take on prisons: “They get to not work and watch TV and read all day. Nap when they want to and take more naps… Our justice system needs to be harsher.” Prisons definitely should be harsher than life outside, where one has to struggle for everything. However, the author has chosen more topics of negative emotions or sardonic humor than what we encounter in regular writings and with our simple lives. But for these elements, this is an easy read, entertaining and educating. The poems are a real treat, most of which are on emotional bonding; many of the quotes are inspirational in nature, and the author’s views on a bunch of topics are unique.
